How it works:
Organic babassu oil smoothes and revitalizes skin.

Organic red grape, plantain and elderflower helps improve skin tone and texture.
Organic buddleja and thyme help protect the skin.
Essential oils and natural fragrances combine to create a gentle fragrance.

This is a good day cream that can be used by those with normal, dry, combination and slightly oily skin after cleansing and using your serum.  To use it you have to massage it into the face and neck with fingertips after cleansing.  

Now for you who are in your twenties, don’t frown upon this product and think about it as something for older women.  Wrinkles are so fine you just cannot tell when you get the first one.  Whether you use this cream or not, you will still have wrinkles one day but well, you can just delay it.  Stress, fatigue and environmental aggressors are just around the corner these days. 

I have sensitive combination skin and this cream is good.  It is rich but light weight and has not given me any pimples yet. It has a nice fragrance.  You do need too much of it just a pea size amount.  It gets absorbed quickly and well, I do not want to say it makes the skin oily.  It just makes it hydrated and smooth so it seems like its oily but its not. 

The nice organic ingredients will help protective and prevent any future skin damage.  If you use it daily you will see the difference in your skin.  Most of buy things to use on a daily basis bt never end up sticking to it.  Stick to this as a routine and it will work.   It is so be used after you cleanse your face and before you put on your sunscreen. 

The Day cream promotes youthful and healthy-looking skin, when used with other products in the Nutriganics regime.  In India you can find 

NUTRIGANICS  Face wash - INR 1495 (foaming)
NUTRIGANICS  Serum – INR  1350

Abroad, they have a few more of them.
